Re: QuarkXpress for writing novels?

I feel your pain, I just finished a 270 page book using Q2017 as my first project with Quark. I too jumped into the deep end and am trying to learn to swim. While I agree that you almost think the developers don't really want you to learn the program and go out of their way to make it as complicated...

[Enter] key doesn't work on my computer

If I press the [Enter] key I get a line feed and not a carriage return. This is like Word when you press [Shift][Enter] to drop down a line and not start a new paragraph. If you turn on invisibles you will see an arrow pointing down after pressing the Enter key rather than a paragraph mark which loo...

Re: Can't add chapter to a book

What you have to do is open the project that Quark complains about and do a Save a Copy. Then add the copy to your book. NEVER COPY A FILE that doesn't work. Always open the original file in Quark and then save as a new name'd file then use that one. I feel your pain as I'm going down the same road ...

Saving a book and selecting chapters to export to PDF

Two questions about the Books dialog box. 1 ) Is there a way to force QuarkXPress to save the selections in Book? I removed a chapter and replaced it with a different chapter. Now when I first open the book file, the chapter that I added to replace the one deleted is out of order and I have to move ...

Re: Unable to change Master Pages

Mike, Thanks for all your helpful suggestions. My book is ~250 pages and a little unwieldy to send. I still haven't given up on figuring out what I've done wrong. I learned Quark about 15-20 years ago and never experienced the issues I've had trying to relearn the new version. This version seems to ...

Re: Blank pages missing in PDF output

Didn't help. I created a blank master page D-Master-D. Assigned the left side page as a D, made sure Include blanks was checked, and it skipped the blank page and put the starting chapter on the left. I currently have 3 Master pages A, B, and C. A is formatted at the beginning chapter head page and ...

Log file errors

While trying to figure out a printing error, I looked at the crash logs and found that they were filled with hundreds of loading errors. Everything failed with error code 0 but it was Windows dll's as well as Quark components and XTensions. Has anybody with 2017 looked in their log file to see if th...

Re: Blank pages missing in PDF output

No I've got it checked.

It's weird, the pages show up as blank pages in Quark but they are missing in the PDF.

It probably doesn't make a difference but I've selected the High Definition output.

Blank pages missing in PDF output

I've ran into a case where some of the blank pages I've inserted to push the starting chapter page to the right side don't show up? It doesn't happen in every case and the only way I've been able to fix it is to change the Master Page to one with page numbers (a non-blank page). The page count is ri...
